This little girl is full of personality already, and I know she’s going to love growing up on the farm.  My daughter got to see her first real life cow on the Ballhorn farm a few years ago and I know so many adventures await this little one!

Basi Extended Family Photos

September 29, 2014

The Basi family was great to work with – Michael usually does our family photography but I was happy to work with this large family – we’re lucky to both be full time photographers so we can schedule multiple shoots at the same time. The kids were so well behaved and everyone was so easy going.

I’d like to say thank you to Balraj for organizing these extended family photos – it takes a lot of work to organize this many people, and she did a fantastic job, right down to the outfits! And thanks to Melissa for being a fab assistant during this shoot.

As I sit snuggled in my office on this rainy Friday afternoon I’m reminiscing about beautiful warm summer days and all the weddings we’ve been able to photograph this year. As our season draws to a close I feel truly grateful to have my dream job and for all of the families and couples that we have worked with.

Here is what Michael had to say about Keegan & Curtis’ wedding:

Keegan and Curtis’ wedding was a beautiful affair on the cusp of fall. The ceremony was held in the Old Timer’s Cabin and afterwards we went right out behind to get some pictures in the ravine.

They are friends with the owners of El Cortez. After we finished a shot of coconut tequila (which is delicious by the way), we used the space to take some seriously cool portraits. Their reception and dance were held at the Mirage Banquet Hall.

I take joy out of many things in life, a big one being travel, and another big one being the opportunity to shoot somewhere other than my own back yard.  Canmore is one of my favourite places in the world, somewhere that I can relax and recharge. The air smells different, and the hours can melt away. I have wonderful memories with some of my favourite people there. If the real estate market weren’t so crazy down there, I’m pretty sure I’d have another home away from home!

Our calendars aligned for me to shoot Sarah & Matt’s engagement photos in Canmore and I was waiting for it all summer.  With dalmatian Kooper along for the trip, we went on a little adventure to find a secluded waterfall, and enjoyed some unseasonably warm weather (it’s really good all the snow had melted in time!).  These two love Kooper a ridiculous amount, and he’s one of the best behaved dogs I’ve ever worked with.

Now, Sarah told me that she wants me to blog every single photo from their session because she loves them all, but I don’t want to make all my other couples jealous, so here’s a taste of our lovely afternoon together.

I first met Vanessa at her sister Angela’s wedding a couple of years ago and I loved her immediately. She is bubbly, over the top, happy, and adorable.  When she emailed me about her own wedding I was thrilled!  Cody was best man for Angela & Jeff, so it was a pretty easy meeting – they both already knew what it’s like to work with me (ie how totally crazy….I mean artistically inspired….I can be).

Vanessa & Cody met through Angela & Jeff. One of my favourite jokes during the reception was that Jeff and Cody were such good friends that they even found a legal way to become brothers!

I want to say a special thank you to Vanessa’s parents Sett & Carla – it’s been such a pleasure to work with your family twice. You are both so full of love for those around you and it’s been wonderful to share your joy on your daughters’ wedding days.  Sett – your poem to Vanessa had me in tears. Carla – you made my day the second I walked through your door in the morning and said “Oh good, our favourite photographer is here!” I’m looking forward to many family shoots to come!

And to Vanessa & Cody….you made my job so easy.  Cody – I admire how dedicated you were to making sure your guests were happy and enjoying themselves on the wedding day and that everything ran on time.  And Vanessa – it’s been a blast. We were meant to be!

I met Nadia and Ian at Nadine and Vijay’s wedding last summer, and Haley had photographed Nadia at Kathy & Jack’s wedding 2 years ago (they met at a birthday dinner for Kathy!). What a great couple! Their wedding ceremony was in the gorgeous All Saints Anglican Cathedral in downtown Edmonton. They and the bridal party joked around a lot during the portraits. Their best man was so courteous. He kept on checking to see if Melissa and I had everything that we needed all day. It was all around a great experience.

We went to the new Blvd Kitchen & Bar for photos between the ceremony and reception. It’s always fun to shoot somewhere new!

Congratulations Nadia and Ian!

– Michael

Before I start this post I want to first extend our heartfelt condolences to Rupinder’s family and extended family on the recently loss of her grandmother. We had the pleasure of meeting her during the wedding festivities and know she will be very missed.

 

We have known Rupinder for years. Most of our early encounters with her were on the dance floor! She was always dancing at the weddings. She is absolutely stunning and so incredibly friendly and we hoped that one day we would be lucky enough to shoot her wedding. Rupinder is one of those girls that knows everyone, and those who know her love her.  She is truly kind-hearted and selfless.

We are absolutely honoured that we were able to be witnesses to the year of her celebrations with Jatinder. We haven’t gotten to spend quite as much time with him but he is a perfect match for Pins, the kind of guy who will do anything for anyone.  Throughout the wedding he wanted to be mindful of anything anyone else needed.  And he’s also a great partner for her on the dance floor!!

Rupinder has faced more than her fair share of tragedy, and I was particularly moved by the speech that she gave at her reception. In the face of adversity, including losing some very close family members, she commented that she was loved, and blessed. That despite the losses and challenges, she was surrounded by the love of her friends and family and especially Jatinder, and that made her feel lucky.  To have such a positive outlook on life is incredibly inspirational.  And I feel lucky that we are able to call these two wonderful people friends.

OK, on to the wedding! The week long celebration took place in Sherwood Park, Edmonton, and Calgary and even though we don’t shoot together anymore, both Michael and I got to both photograph portions of it!  I got to road trip to Calgary twice in one week =) Thanks to our second shooter Bruce for being there through it all.

Little Ellery was set to arrive at the beginning of September, but surprised her parents by coming at the end of June instead, 9 weeks early! Luckily, she is perfect. Healthy, happy, and already starting to develop a feisty little personality.  She gave me a run for my money during her newborn shoot, preferring to be sprawled out, or wide awake, but I used all of my tricks to get her to sleep for me. Welcome to the world little one!

Details, details, details. Sarah was all about the details for her modern and whimsical wedding in August!  What I love about the details that Sarah & Matt chose for their wedding is that they were cute and fun but not cheesy.  Little touches made the day more fun for everyone, from unique wedding favours for their outdoor ceremony at Red Tail Landing (sunglasses!) to lawn games to entertain the guests at cocktail hour. Sarah & Matt left nothing out.

We spent the day taking photos around downtown and Whyte Ave, in the hustle and bustle of the Fringe. Some of the Fringe goers actually thought Sarah & Matt were an act, not a real wedding couple! They even got money for ‘busking’!

At the end of the wedding we spent a few quiet moments outside at the golf course and it was a great day to cap off a wonderfully sweet wedding.  It took Matt 3 tries to propose in Vegas, but thankfully only one to get married! Congrats Sarah & Matt!

Kristine is vibrant and determined, Sean is a little more quiet.  After many years together, their dream wedding came together at the Art Gallery of Alberta.  After two engagement sessions together I was really looking forward to photographing these two – they are easy going, and happy to follow my suggestions for where to go for photos (including traipsing through some super tall grass bustling with mosquitoes!).  Their small bridal party (just maid of honour Erin and best man Ian) were so fantastic, and we had a relaxed day.

Congratulations Kristine & Sean!

So…apparently Sean never actually proposed.  I have to say this was a first, witnessing a marriage proposal AFTER the wedding!

There were some technical difficulties with the cake, the Art Gallery staff did an awesome job in helping make sure Kristine & Sean still had a beautiful cake to cut. Talk about going the extra mile!

Big thanks to Bruce & Jesse for all their hard work!  Jesse proved some special talents by photographing while the maid of honour sat on him…and luckily Bruce knows how to pin boutonnieres!
